Average is boring, and you are definitely not boring. You are unique and amazing and it’s time to head into the new school year expressing all the ways that make you you. Be #SavageNotAverage. Take chances, express yourself, surprise people, and be a badass doing it.
Be a badass
There’s no time for apologies. You’re unapologetically you. Be the next Bowie, Madonna, or Rihanna. Clap back when needed. But don’t be mean. In fact, stand up for others when you see bullying. Now that’s badass. And the world loves a good badass.
Hockey legend Wayne Gretzky once said “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” So take every shot. Do the things you’re usually This applies as school, too. They’re not going to be your date to the dance if you don’t ask. And you’ll never be class president if you don’t run.
Don’t go for second best, baby. One of the biggest life regrets people have is that “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.” Well, there’s no time like the present. Yeah, this can mean dressing the way you want. But expression is even bigger than that. Start a band (any kind – see: next section) or a YouTube channel. Your point of view is as good as any popular instagrammer.
What do you absolutely LOVE that nobody would guess? Secretly listen to Metallica while you study? Show it off. Take your love for it to school (or to that YouTube channel you’re starting). And maybe you’ll inspire others to surprise you.
What makes you you? Maybe it’s a fun hobby, or a interesting point of view, or even a great story that defines a moment in your life. Share a pic on social media with #SavageNotAverage and tag @AllPosters to show us.
Cheers to an amazing new school year!
